In his first book, The Little Book of Stress, Rohan Candappa taught us how to add more stress to our lives. In The Little Book of Christmas Stress, Rohan applies this teaching to the holiday season. After all, Christmas is the year's most important celebration of stress!
Not enough money, not enough time, not enough chairs for everyone to sit on. Too many presents to get, too many relatives to invite, too many things to get into the oven at the same time. Christmas is an endurance test in stress. But thank goodness Rohan Candappa is here to help with this little bit of advice: Embrace the true meaning of Christmas, and do all you can to encourage the generation of stress in yourself and those around you this Festering Season!
If you're not sure how to get started, Rohan offers a long list of suggestions. For example, unrealistic expectations are always a winner at Christmas. Try to encourage as many of them as you possibly can. Or on visits to friends or relatives, shake their Christmas trees vigorously when no one is looking. And at selected moments try to spoil everyone's Christmas Day by bringing religion into it. And what would Christmas be without children? Delight your friends and relatives by secretly teaching their young children rude versions of Christmas carols. In addition, make sure any children you encounter understand that the true meaning of Christmas is to get as many presents as possible.
A how-to guide for infusing the holidays with extra touches of aggravation, this funny Little Book might be the only laugh you get in December!
